Cream Cheese and Jam Crumb Cake


Le Creuset Giveaway

In honor of moms everywhere, and the upcoming Mothers Day holiday, I’m hosting some giveaways this week with a Mothers Day brunch theme!

To kick us off is Le Creuset with a gorgeous cake stand (I love cake stands) that is perfect for a cake, pie, cookies, lets be honest, I’d serve roast chicken off this thing, it’s gorgeous! But not just that, we are also throwing in some beautiful French preserves by Bonne Maman. The winner also gets four jars in fabulous flavors like Fig, Strawberry and Golden Mirabelle. I love that these are jams that have simple, honest ingredients, jam like your Grandmother would have made in her own kitchen, with the fruit from her trees.

To celebrate these gorgeous jams, I wanted to give you a recipe that works well with all the great flavors. Of course, I looked to Martha, a woman who is no stranger to French jams. I adapted her amazing crumb cake recipe for the use of these jams, making it three times to get it just right. I love this so much, and I love that it works with all of these fabulous jams.

Cream Cheese and Jam Crumb Cake2

The winner will receive: One cherry red Le Creuset cake stand, four jars of French Bonne Maman preserves, shipped anywhere in the continental USA, you can even have it shipped directly to your mom! Or keep it for yourself, I won’t judge.

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Congrats to Whitney! Our winner!

    This is gorgeous!! Tons of crumb, I love that! I recently made a crumb cake for another project I’m working on and didn’t even know that Martha recipe was around. Wow, looks like a keeper. And what a fabulous giveaway. Just started a lecreuset one on my site today too! Pinned!

    And it was AWESOME to meet you this weekend!

    Hello. I’m new to your site (just came across it in the previous post on the strawberry cheesecake popcycles). And I just love your photos! I love how you capture the “fun in the sun” theme in your photos. Like the strawberry cheesecake popcycle, this photo relays the bright sunshine of a warm spring day….when everything is sunny, relaxed, and carefree.

    This looks great! I love Bonne Maman jams–they’re tasty and all-natural, their jars are wonderful to re-use, and I take a small bit of delight in using a jam named “Good mom.” 🙂
